From managing the careers of prominent musicians such as Alice Cooper to celebrity chef, Emeril Lagasse, Shep Gordon has more than earned a documentary movie about himself. Supermensch: Legend of Shep Gordon was produced in 2013 by Mike Meyers to honor a kind and gentle soul who has coached, counseled, supported and helped many of his friends in the entertainment business. Mensch means gentleman in Yiddish. To celebrate his life and achievements, the Festival honors Shep with a six-course dinner created by six of his chef friends at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa.
